Signs of a Gambling Problem

During the last 12 months...

1. Have you ever lied to your family or friends about how much/often you gamble?
2. Have you ever felt the need to bet more and more money?
3. Have you ever become restless, irritable or anxious when trying to stop/cut down on gambling?
4. Have you ever had to get help from family or friends with living expenses as a result of your gambling?

Answering “yes” to one or more of these signs means you may have a gambling problem.
